Sly's hits is my most played Sly album
I always feel a little embarrassed about that since his regular albums are so good, but damn the song selection on that is just too perfect. The album basically plays like a replacement for Stand since almost everything from that album is on Greatest hits except for the two longest songs which most agree are slightly weaker anyway. And the three extra songs they added in are among the best songs in their entire discography.
Get that and Riot and you've basically got 90% of all the Sly most casual fans could ever need.
Meaty Beaty Big & Bouncy is also great since there's so little overlap with the studio albums, and some of the versions are unique to that comp (Magic Bus for instance). That reminds me of Rolling Stones' Flowers comp which I also like a lot. There's a lot of overlap with other albums but the song selection is great so I kind of prefer it in many ways.
